Had an excellent lunch. Excellent shrimp and grits, chicken Parmesan The staff was knowledgable and kept an eye out to make sure we were ok. The magaritas in a mason jar was refreshing just the right blend of tart and sweet. Definitely would go back good value for the money

This was the reason we came. Tried to give us the rest of our order to go, but we declined. Took ten minutes for our... More

Food was very good, their signature dishes : shrimp n grits and ribs. Ribs a bit over done. Lots of poorly behaved children, therefore noisy.

If you are near Duck while down at the beach, I would recommend this Café. The food was excellent and this is a restaurant that I will frequent more often.

They did not honor preferred seating - did not even have our name. When we got into the restaurant, it was very hot and muggy in spite... More
